Shining 3D Wins Prestigious Electronics Award, Invites the World to Share Art Through 3D Scanning
It’s been a good year for Chinese 3D printer and scanner manufacturer Shining 3D. They began the year by introducing two new products, and in recent months they expanded their headquarters while simultaneously unveiling a whole new 3D printing ecosystem. As 2016 winds down, things are still going brilliantly for the company, which was just given a prestigious award from the electronics industry and is currently in the midst of an ambitious art preservation initiative.
At the end of September, Shining 3D launched the Save the World ART project, inviting people around the world to 3D scan art and artifacts from museums for the purpose of creating a massive online database of art and other historically significant items, similar to MyMiniFactory’s Scan the World initiative. Shining 3D developed the project as a way for art across the world to be accessible to anyone, anywhere, at any time – because even the most enthusiastic museum-hoppers will never make it to all of the world’s great collections.
The project is running until October 31, and anyone is invited to contribute, from individual scanner owners to museums themselves. Don’t have a scanner? You can apply here for a loan of an EinScan-Pro 3D Scanner, which Shining 3D introduced at CES in January. 3D scans can be emailed to info@shining3D.com or uploaded to Sketchfab with the hashtags #EinScan-Pro and #SWART. Submitted scans will be eligible for prizes including a 3D print of your scan in your choice of SLA, SLS or SLM printing technology; a loan of an EinScan-Pro scanner for your own personal project; or Shining 3D’s sponsorship of your own museum-related project.
Speaking of the EinScan-Pro, the scanner has been a star since it was released, and was recently awarded the 2016 Electronic Industries Product of the Year Award in the 3D Printing category. The award was presented at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, which took place last week. The 36th edition of the leading electronics trade show was organized by the Hong Kong Electronics Industry Association (HKEIA) along with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).
The EinScan-Pro has been a hit for its multi-functional scanning capabilities, high definition imaging, and speed. The handheld scanner includes four different scanning modes: handheld rapid scan, handheld 4D (high definition) scan, automatic scan, and free scan. With an external camera, users can also turn it into a full-color scanner.
“The EinScan Pro was judged on a comprehensive criteria that included design, innovation, quality, environmental, marketability, usefulness of functions, and packaging,” Shining 3D states. “The panel of judges was made up of highly respected academics, industry stakeholders, and industrialists…The Electronic Industries Award 2016 was granted to the EinScan Pro for it’s versatility, high speed, high compatibility, quality scanning capabilities, and cost-effectiveness.”
As part of the award, Shining 3D will receive a lot of promotional support from HKEIA and their partners. The company will be able to take advantage of advertising opportunities in prominent media outlets including newspapers, magazines, and websites, as well as displaying their products at major international electronics trade shows over the course of the next year. In the coming months, Shining 3D will appear at the spring 2017 edition of the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, plus the Hong Kong Lifestyle Expo, which will be taking place in Dubai from November 6 to 7 and in New Delhi from December 19 to 20.
